Nd:YAG dual wavelength (1064/532nm)

Two wavelengths give physicians the flexibility to adapt treatments precisely to the patient’s needs and to a wide range of pigment colors (from darker colors to blue and red).

Highest energy and shortest pulses

The PicoStar uses the latest technology with the highest power to generate pulses below 300 ps for the most effective treatment of pigments and multicolored tattoos. The system can operate for a long duration with high speed and without the need of pre-pulses for the user. This makes it one of the fastest and most reliable PICO systems on the market. The ultra-short pulses allow bursting the pigment particles without any thermal side effects or scars. This increases patient comfort and providing greater flexibility and efficiency.

Zoom handpiece with different spot sizes

The PicoStar has an ergonomic, thin and light zoom handpiece. It is made of stainless steel for easy handling and cleaning. Thanks to a rotating ring on the handpiece, the spot size can be adjusted without changing the handpiece or tip. This offers you the flexibility to work on both larger and smaller areas with the maximum degree of precision.

Uniform beam profile and automatic spot detection

A special lens system creates a uniform spot without “hot spots” by distributing the laser energy in a perfectly way. This results in less pain and lower bleeding levels. The shape of the spot is designed to guarantee the optimum coverage of the treatment area with greater efficiency. The zoom handpiece with automatic spot detection allows flexible and easy adjustment for all applications and body regions. This ensures fast, safe and efficient treatment with a convincing result.

Touch screen and user-friendly interface

The PicoStar features a large, clear, sharp and easy to use 10.1” touch screen display. It has been completely redesigned and adapted to the needs of the user. The menu is suitable for both beginners and experts. The large buttons and icons offer good detectability and the dark background delivers a higher contrast and color brilliance. There is a clear highlighting of active elements through size and color change. Beginners can choose the indication, and have the corresponding parameters set automatically. Professional users can go directly into the work screen with all parameter settings, for a fast and effective treatment.

Asclepion Laser Technologies is working closely with physicians, clinics and universities to improve technologies to assess their effectiveness and safety as well as to improve its application. In clinical studies, scientific questions are answered in a controlled environment. This ensures the best possible results for both the users and patients.

The PicoStar can be upgraded with the following optional items:

DYE handpieces: maximum effectiveness even on lighter pigments

Thanks to a special dye, the green wavelength of the Nd:YAG laser (532 nm) can be transformed into yellow or red light. The special wavelength of 585 nm or 650 nm allow the treatment of the most difficult colors, such as green, blue, lilac and lighter colors.

THE BEST PICO LASER
on the market

The PicoStar is using the most modern technology for the removal of tattoos, pigmented lesions and permanent makeup. Thanks to the highest energy and shortest pulses the treatment with the PicoStar is fast, gentle, mostly bloodless and does not leave any scars.
